Free Ramp Skating


An indoor skate ramp has been set up in North Cheam for anyone who wants to go along and do a bit of skateboarding or just ‘chill’ in the company of those that do. It is free to turn up and to join in and you can buy food and drink there.

They provide helmets (which must be worn), and any other equipment needed, including skateboards. Please note that the mini-ramp is not a beginners' obstacle, and riders should at least be able to drop in on their scooter/skateboard/blades to use it.

Sutton Ramp Events  put on regular events like this in Sutton and have been awarded money by the Government and the Council, including £5000 from the Participatory Budgeting scheme run by the Local Committee for Worcester Park, North Cheam and Stonecot to do so. They have set up the ramp in the North Cheam ‘You Are Here’ shop at 462 London Road and it will be there until Saturday (6th April) so if skating is your thing, why not go along and join in?

On my travels canvassing in Nonsuch war, one of the top priorities for residents I spoke to was youth opportunities and keeping the our youths busy and out of trouble ..I think time will tell if this initiative works, and if it is does lets hope funding continues and this is not another under funded fly by night youth program..

There is a very large area dedicated to cycling over ramps (no idea what the 'sport' is called) at the former clay-pit site in Nonsuch Park. I walk past it most days but have never seen it in use. Why not?

Do you mean Diana's Dyke? I used to go there when I was a kid, I think it's still used occasionally as I've seen BMX-ers riding over it in more recent times, not the safest of places however as the scars on my elbows will attest!
